For me, business travel has always been a mixed bag. I don’t like making reservations, packing, airports, airplanes, rental cars, and unfamiliar freeways, but I do enjoy meeting new people and being exposed to new and different ideas. I also love sharing what I know (or pretend to know) with a willing audience. COVID-19 put […]
Here is my friend, Thomas Roemer of Avaya, with another demonstration of IoT in action. In this video, he is running my IoT workflow tasks (plus several others I created) from the Avaya CPaaS cloud platform (formerly known as Zang). Cool stuff!
I have been a “professional” programmer since 1983 (yes, I am that old) and still get a kick out of seeing how other people use my software. In this case, Thomas Roemer from Avaya has created a smart parking solution that employs the artificial intelligence and IoT integration software I created. It’s a cool video […]
“The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible.” – Arthur C. Clarke In technology, some ideas take a long time to catch on. Consider Microsoft’s journey to Skype for Business. For better or worse, I was there from the beginning — from Microsoft’s first foray into telephony […]
On a recent episode of the public radio program, Marketplace, the host, Kai Ryssdal, asked his guest to describe her job in five words or less. I can’t remember what her response was, but it made me think about what mine might be. My first reaction was something akin to “Waiting until retirement day,” but […]
Come together, right now over me Lennon and McCartney If you are as old as I am, you have almost certainly been asked this question at least once in your life: “Beatles or Stones?” While that is an easy answer for some folks, I happen to really like both bands. No single Beatle had […]
Once again, my friends at Avaya have done really cool things with my IoT software!
Avaya has been very busy creating Breeze workflows with my IoT software and the most engaging uses of my work can be found in their Lego Smart City. It’s impressive how little blocks of plastic can be so successful at presenting IoT in ways that everyone can relate to. Here are two videos that demonstrate […]
It’s important to know one’s limitations. For example, I consider myself a pretty good computer programmer. I love problem solving and turning abstract concepts into lines of code. Over the years, I have written everything from SIP-based communication services to hard disk interrupt processors. However, I am not good at writing software that people can […]
As a nerdy guy, I love movies about other nerdy guys. Give me movies like “A Beautiful Mind,” “The Theory of Everything,” or “Einstein and Eddington” (two nerdy scientists for the price of one), and I am in geek heaven. Recently, I was thrilled by “The Imitation Game” — the story of Alan Turing and […]
